This 4-piece O-ring pick kit is perfect for removing O-rings. With 4 different heads to choose from it ensures you have the right size tool for your style of O-ring. It also protects the surface of the metal groove from getting damaged by a sharp metal tool like a screwdriver or metal hook. Removing of an O-ring in a safe and undamaged matter is a difficult task but by using an O-ring pick tool it gives you great assistance to ensure no damage occurs.
As most O-rings are black in colour it is not easy to recognise what rubber material they are. That’s where the O-ring recogniser can be of assistance as it can establish what rubber material your O-ring is. The 4 kinds of rubber it recognises are:
- EPDM 70
The O-ring recogniser itself is a tube, pen like tool, with a controlled or specific weight inside it. The weight falls a controlled height or distance. To determine an O-ring’s rubber compound, place the O-ring on a stable table or surface. Place the O-ring recogniser over the O-ring and raise the weight all the way to the top of the tube (as far as it will go). Release the weight and let it drop onto the O-ring. It will bounce. The height of the first bounce will rise to one of the four rubber materials it can identify. This then determines what material your O-ring is.
The seal clasper is designed for the installation of PTFE piston seals. It can clasp the seals back to the groove, with a seal ranging from 50mm OD to 360mm OD. The stainless-steel belt is adjustable according to the dimension of the seals, and the HPU triangle protector prevents the seal from getting damaged in the pressing process. With the clasper the piston seal can be fitted into the cylinder safely and rapidly. Due to its ease of use it saves on time and ensure no use of improvised tools.
The Seal digger is a tool used for the installation and disassembly of oil seals. Using the seal digger ensures no damage occurs to the seal or shaft surface while removing the seal from the groove.
The seal hook kit is used for the proper removal of seals and O-rings from a groove. The kit consists of 8 different heavy duty metal hook heads with plastic handles. The 8 different sizes give you the option to choose which size to use depending on the profile of the seal. Using the appropriate hook will ensure the chance of damage extremely low.
The seal stretcher tool heavy duty or seal expander tool helps to install PTFE piston seals by expanding sizes. This enables you to stretch a heated PTFE ring to a desired size. Applicable sizes ID: 35-250mm, maximum height: 7.5mm. Once stretched the piston seal can be placed on the groove and secured in place with the Seal Clasper.
The seal twistor aids the installation of seals, eliminating the risk of damaging the sealing lip. As most seal failures are caused by bad installation using the seal twistor reduces that immensely. There are 4 different sizes in the set which allows you to use the best size option for your seal installation. The twistor turns the seal into an omega shape to make the size of the seal smaller than the gland diameter. The seal crosses over the sharp chamfers safely, then rebounds in the groove.
The Four sizes in the set:
S 22-30 mm
M 30-50 mm
L 50-70 mm
XL 70-165 mm
